Our Work

The United Way is excited to share with the community our new focus on EDUCATIONINCOME and HEALTH.  We brought together a group of local content experts, United Way donors and United Way Partner Agency Representatives, who met monthly from January 2013 through May 2013 to help create community-level goals that are unique to the issues facing Paducah and McCracken County.  We invite you to click below to view our Community Impact Plans for each focus area.




Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We recognize structural racism, ethnic discrimination and other forms of oppression have contributed to disparities that have existed in the past and persist in the present. We acknowledge those inequities are the result of policies and practices that work to marginalize entire populations of people. We unequivocally denounce racism/ethnic discrimination because it undermines the well-being and vitality of our communities. The United Way of Paducah-McCracken County works with public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, support, opportunities and networks they need to thrive.
